Hey-up guys, q1: .ts files, are they compressed at all? My mate seems to think they are but i'm not sure. He's claiming that they are not "true" hd and not how hd stuff will appear from a blueray player. I can understand they maybe encrypted but, even if they are compressed, would it make a diference to the quality we see now? q2: Now from my days of assembler programming and spanking gfx memory directly, interlacing was drawing, for example, every even row of pixels and then on the next refresh doing the odd rows. Basically, you would only draw half the screen on each refresh but to the naked eye (hopefully!) you should appear to get the full 1080. The same mate from question 1 said that 1080i stuff only infact uses 540 lines and its not how I think it works. Who's right? Thanks loads in advance for helping a very confused person.
